have been horrible lately. Not only am I canning but, I have seemingly become a taxi service for certain people in my life. It’s not that bad unless they become demanding.
So far I have canned several varieties of pickles, beets, tomatoes, and hot peppers. There’s more tomatoes coming ripe and green beans for dilly beans. So no break anytime soon for me.
I have one friend who thinks I am at her beacon call and should drop everything and everyone to take her wherever she wants to go. She gets angry when I can’t take her when she wants. Then she gets a snotty attitude towards me. I don’t think she realizes that if she keeps it up I may have to resign the service. I have to travel a half hour to get her, then take her wherever, before I go back home. This usually takes alot of time usually for petty things.
Then there’s those who have made a single request and once in the car have a list of things to get done. This too, sometimes takes a long time. Thankfully, I have not had too many appointments to work around lately.
Bottom line: sometimes I need a break to. Lately, I’m having alot of pain and horrible sleep. Sometimes, I don’t want to answer my phone and other times it’s on the charger or in another room. They can always leave a message. Some call repeatedly.
I think it’s time to do my thing and worry about others when I am done. I can return a call and plan accordingly. Definitely will decrease the stress on me!
